The EPA releases its decision about dicamba re-registration, giving growers clarification on the herbicide's availability. 

EPA Administrator, Andrew Wheeler speaks with RFD-TV's own Tammi Arender on his announcement and how his decision will bring better certainty to growers. 

"We are going to issue a five year registration for dicamba for the next five years to provide certainty... I will say right now, we are going to be able to re-register dicamba for the use in next year's growing season," according to Wheeler.
